For being a blogger, I’m surprisingly “un-techy”. Like don’t even know how to work the DVD player without supervision from my husband un-techy. It’s that bad.
And because I’m so terrible with technology, I have a box of cords from all of our electronics and I have no idea what most of them do. I just hang onto all of them because someday I may, in fact, need a cord for a specific device, and I’ll have to go searching for its match.
See told ya it was scary!With it being a new year and a fresh start, I figured it was finally time to tackle this mess once and for all. So here’s how I tamed the beast and to organize electronic cords for good!
I gathered a few supplies to start organizing. Clothespins, a black pen, and some colorful washi tape. (I think I should buy stock in washi tape. I use it for just about everything!)
The first step was the most time-consuming. I had to figure out what the heck each cord did and which electronic it went with. I plugged in so many cords, to so many random things around our house, until everything had a match. Then, I put a little piece of washi tape on the end of the cord and marked which device was its match.
Now I can’t say that this little project made me more tech-savvy. I think I’m a lost cause. But it certainly made me feel accomplished, and I’m not quite as scared of this little gray box.
